Transcription: 
Hello, my name is Dr. Jorge Partida. I'm a clinical psychologist and I guess I've always been a psychologist. I grew up the oldest of six and with a grandmother who was a curandera - a healer. I became interested in the idea of helping and healing. I'm interested in the integration of culture and spirituality and healing across the world. In my spare time I'm a painter, I love to paint. And I love to work out. I also, right now, am the Executive Director of the United States Green Building Council-Los Angeles and really interested in the question of sustainability across culture and across different realms of life.
